The Fresno Art Museum did a wonderful job creating an entertaining fundraiser on Saturday with its fashion-meets-recycling concept Trashique. The event really showcases creativity and innovation through fashion. I really loved how the artists interpreted the 13 scenes, each inspired by different art theme. I particularly loved the Van Gogh and pop-art designs.
Above all, I find the use of these “trash” materials inspired. All the designs showed ingenuity. It was fun getting a closer look at the designs after the show and realizing how beautiful odd objects can become when manipulated in a creative way. I’d love to hear what you think of the fashion, so share your critiques in the comments for this edition of You Rate the Look.
I’ll start with one of my favorites, from Adam Mena (modeled by Skylar Devoogd), which used balloon fragments. (Sorry for the soft focus – low light + iPhone = not too sharp).
You can check out a lot more photos at The Full Moxie, where Traci breaks down all aspects of the evening.
